Our very first concern was to gain familiarity with the BOINC platform. To this end we

set up a test project on an ordinary desktop machine. This server we would use to develop

LHC@home on, until we had the project ready for public release at which point we would

move the project to real server machines dedicated to this project. After we had moved the

project we would continue to use the test project for testing new versions of SixTrack before

releasing them to the public as well as develop the bridges described in chapters 5 & 6. For

the test project we developed a small wrapper program that would take care of doing the

necessary BOINC calls as well as packing and unpacking data and running the main SixTrack

program. This would eliminate the need for adding the BOINC calls to SixTrack. The test

project showed that this wrapper approach, while very useful and easily adapted to other

BOINC projects, had some shortfalls. We will cover this in more detail in section 3.5.5.
